IMG_3832This winter we had several events on the calendar that were confronted with unpredictable New England weather. If you can pull it off, a party in the winter, surrounded by the white covered ground and snowflakes falling overhead, can be fun and magical! A client featured in a previous post for their Thanksgiving gathering came back to the drawing board when they wanted to expand the space for a larger Holiday party.

The outdoor entertaining areas on this property are naturally beautiful with unique stonework, solid surface counters, amenities of a kitchen and other custom features. Creating a patio enclosure was the perfect way to extend the entertaining area into the outdoors and utilize the stunning space. Installing clear fabric on the top and sides of the tent allows you to feel like you are standing outside while staying warm and dry!

The manufacturing department created the tent drapery and custom sidewall to fit around the client’s stonework and countertops. Once on site, the installers took extreme care building the frame in the somewhat restricted area and wedged the tent perfectly into place.

It snowed during the event, making for an exciting night for the host and party-goers as they watched the snow fall down right above them through the clear top tent! Despite the weather, or maybe in part due to the weather, the party was a huge success!
